Whilst you may be keen to capture your event on camera, the thought of having a full production crew cluttering up the place can sound rather unappealing. The good news is that this doesn’t have to be the case! Hire a single cameraman to film your event inconspicuously and benefit from lower costs too.
Of course, with so many videographers to choose from, finding the right one for event filming can feel like a real challenge. Luckily for you, we’ve put together a quick guide on choosing the right videographer for your event.
Where to find good candidates
Event videographers can be found everywhere from local listings in newspapers to websites and social media. We recommend doing a few searches on Google and other websites to find a videographer in your local area. If you are looking for an event videographer in Hampshire or London, you can always get in touch with the team here at Zealous Media!
Another great way to find potential candidates is to ask other vendors that you’re working with for their recommendations. They’re likely to have come across videographers at other events they’ve worked at and maybe able to put you in touch with one of their contacts.
Ask for examples of their work
When you’ve come up with a shortlist of event videographers, ask them to each provide examples of their work. This will allow you to check the quality of their work and also get an idea of their style. Choose an event videographer whose style fits in with the type of event film you are looking to create.
Before meeting with a videographer, it’s a good idea to check their references. Ask to speak with a few of their previous clients so you can get a better idea of their reliability, timeliness and quality of service.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions
When meeting with a videographer, it’s important that you find out everything you need to know in order to make a well-informed decision. Don’t be afraid to ask questions relating to the videographer’s experience in filming events, as well as their technical knowledge.
Find out what sort of equipment they will be using to create your event video and enquire about their timescales. You need to know that your event videographer is going to be able to produce the video in good time.
Make sure you like them
It may sound silly but it’s extremely important that you like your videographer and feel comfortable around them. After all, they’re going to be amongst your guests at your event, so you need to know they’re going to blend in and not cause any awkwardness.
The best way to gain this information is to meet with the videographer in person. That way you can get a feel for their personality and see if they’re going to be the right person for the job.
